PI Web Reporting System

Preferences and Options

Managing PI Preferences

The PI Preferences view allows PIs to customize their view of the PI Web Reporting System.

PIs may rename funds, re-order funds, select funds to display that did not initially meet the display criteria (e.g. the fund has expired), and apply color schemes.

Note: the option to display a particular fund will be reset each month, as the status of a fund (e.g. the expiration date) may change.

In addition, PIs may optionally allow Collaborators to view specific fund reports. For example, a Prime PI may wish to grant other faculty (e.g. Co-PIs) view access to a particular fund.
